"The Congressional Research Service (CRS) is the policy research arm of the US Congress. With its $80 million budget and 800 employees, it issues about 3,000 briefs, reports, short issue papers and longer position papers per year.
An arm of the Library of Congress, the Congressional Research Service is renowned for its non-partisanship and in-depth analysis, but it does not make its reports available to the public. However, it cannot prevent members of Congress from giving them out individually and some government agencies from posting reports they find relevant. Perhaps 1000 have become available on the web."
"The goal of our non-partisan Congressional Report Cards is to provide information for evaluating members of the United States Congress on the most important, and often ignored by the media, part of their job: making "good" laws."
"This commercial site has a Capital directory of Congress, the Executive and Judicial Branch, as well as State Governors. One section devoted to tips on how to communicate with Congress. Information Scores lets you see how some national associations rate voting records of members of Congress."
"Congress.gov is the official website for U.S. federal legislative information. The site provides access to accurate, timely, and complete legislative information for Members of Congress, legislative agencies, and the public. It is presented by the Library of Congress (LOC) using data from the Office of the Clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives, the Office of the Secretary of the Senate, the Government Publishing Office, Congressional Budget Office, and the LOC's Congressional Research Service."
